Detailed Descriptions for the elements in the extension.

Extension
Element IdExtension
Definition

Secondary findings are genetic test results that provide information about variants in a gene unrelated to the primary purpose for the testing, most often discovered when Whole Exome Sequencing (WES) or Whole Genome Sequencing (WGS) is performed. This extension should be used to denote when a genetic finding is being shared as a secondary finding, and ideally refer to a corresponding guideline or policy statement.

For more detail, please see: https://ghr.nlm.nih.gov/primer/testing/secondaryfindings.

Typeuri
Comments

The definition may point directly to a computable or human-readable definition of the extensibility codes, or it may be a logical URI as declared in some other specification. The definition SHALL be a URI for the Structure Definition defining the extension.

Fixed Valuehttp://hl7.org/fhir/StructureDefinition/observation-secondaryFinding
Extension.value[x]
Element IdExtension.value[x]
Definition

Value of extension - must be one of a constrained set of the data types (see Extensibility for a list).

Terminology BindingCodes to denote a guideline or policy statement when a genetic test result is being shared as a secondary finding.
The codes SHALL be taken from Genetic Observation Secondary Findings; other codes may be used where these codes are not suitable
